Aso-Oke (pronounced ah-SHOW-kay) is short for Aso Ilu Oke which means clothes from the up-country. It is also sometimes refereed to as Aso-Ofi. It is a hand woven cloth made mostly by the Yoruba tribe of south west Nigeria. It is woven in strips and these strips are sewn together to make clothing.
It is a thick fabric which is similar in texture to denim or canvas.
You can order the length of the fabric strip you require by using the arrows above to specify quantity. Your fabric will be sent as one continuous length. The width of the strip is 5.5 inches (14 cm).
You also have the option of buying a half bundle which is 8 metres or the full bundle of 16 metres which will give you a saving compared to buying by the metre.
